Best part about the film is the opening titles. You just can't beat the sight of arnie feeding a deer to the sound of synthesised steel drums
This movie is the epitome of 80s action movies. So many amazing one liners and the action is great too. It's so ridiculous and the man who plays Bennett is so miscast but also perfect for the role.
Don’t disturb my friend, he’s dead tired.
Commando had some of the one-liners that Arnold Schwarzenegger ever made in any one of his movies.
"Remember when I said that I was going to kill you last? I LIED."
"Blow off some steam, Bennett!"
And who could forget, "Don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired."
"I eat Green Berets for lunch.
Vaffles for breakfast!"
You get exposed to the villain Bennett in a whole new way when you grow up and watch it again.
I'm pretty sure he wanted to do much more than fight with Arnolds character.
TIL Alyssa Milano had a role in that movie (playing as a daughter there).
Yet I recall the moment when he arrived at the house at the start of the movie. [He arrived with a trunk of a tree on his shoulder and a chainsaw or chain at his other hand...](#spoiler)
"You're a funny guy, Sully! I like you. That's why I'm going to kill you last."
Easily one of the best action films ever made. The steel drum score is such a fantastic edition.
"DUNT YU UNDASTAN, DAY GUNNA KILL HURR!"
And that marimba / xylophone beat: da da da da da....da da.. da da..
Dan Hedaya's terrible Latino accent lol. God, I love this movie
I like that the description on TV starts with "A human killing machine..."
My favorite scenes are when mall security is involved. The mall security guy says to a pair of hot chicks "wanna see me kick some ass?" I mean do mall security guys really have groupies? Then he gives an even better line in his radio when he sees Arnold hiding by a column in a creepy stalker way - "He is one gigantic mother fucker!"
Yeah, Bennett being so nonmuscular was bizarre. Even when he shot Arnold in the arm I felt he still didn't have a chance in hell.
